Asus Zenfone AR - a flagship of the future
The company Asus tries not only to meet the real needs of users, but also to anticipate their upcoming desires. A virtual reality is developing at an incredibly fast pace, and using its capabilities in the flagship model is the key to possible success. But can the product be popular only because of one, albeit very innovative "chip"?
ZTE Nubia Z17 Mini - style, workability and low price
The decline in sales of smartphones in 2016 makes the Chinese company ZTE go to desperate measures. Having lost the budget and middle price segments, the developer still does not lose hope to become a leader in them. And the hero of today's review is quite similiar to a product, capable, if not to restore the company's positions, then certainly retrieve its character.
iMax X5 - a modest segment leader
Inexpensive smartphones are getting better every year. When they acquire new functions, they almost completely copy the "older brothers". The hero of today's review for its small price is ready to provide also a IP67-protection from dust and water. Will it become a real bestseller?
Elephone P8 - the future is near
The Chinese company Elephone can not be attributed to the leaders of the national and especially the international smartphone market. Firm atempts to attract the audience with the help of the flagship devices release also can hardly be called successful. However, we learn from our mistakes and the hero of this review in terms of both design and performance fully meets the requirements of today's users.
Blackview A9 Pro - wanna be a camera phone!
The Chinese company Blackview is struggling to keep track of all the fashion trends in the smartphone market. The over-popular double camera in the budget price segment is one of those. And why should not the firm take an advantage of the opportunity to create a modest at price, but extremely attractive phone with good photographic abilities?
AGM X1 - perfect protection
The segment of IP68-smartphones for a long time was extremely conservative and did not accept the innovations coming to the market of mobile electronics. The Chinese company AGM also decided to take advantage of the slowness of other manufacturers and to present to the public a protected phone that meets all modern technological standards. But was it done successfully by the corporation?
AGM A8 - protected, armed and dangerous for competitors
Specializing in the producing of IP68-smartphones, the Chinese company AGM quickly identified its approach to product development. Although its phones do not differ by record performance or compactness, they are extremely balanced for their price in most parameters. And the hero of today's review is no exception to this rule.
Meizu S - an energy-saving hit
The Chinese company Meizu, despite its sometimes controversial products, is definitely capable of creating real bestsellers, increasing its popularity more and more. And the current year for it has already begun with good profit indicators. The hero of today's review could well make its creators even richer.
Lenovo Vibe B - too budgetary
From inexpensive smartphones we are rarely waiting for something supernatural. However, the necessary minimum of functions, ensuring the satisfaction of users needs and the competitiveness of the phone, must be observed. Unfortunately, the Chinese company Lenovo does not quite agree with this statement.
LeEco Le Pro 3 Elite - a national flagship?
The ambitions of the Chinese company LeEco, which invested billions of dollars in its entry into the smartphone market, remained incompletely incarnated. Despite the significantly increased popularity and fairly good sales, the company incurs losses. And it is possible that the hero of today's review will become her swan song.
AGM A2 - IP68 in miniature
Specializing in secure smartphones, the Chinese company AGM decided to distribute its products not only in all price segments, but also in various dimensional categories. The hero of today's review can become a favorite mobile assistant of both an adult male, a young child or a fragile, cute girl.
Echo Sensation - perfection of a style
Only the most famous and profitable manufacturers of smartphones can afford the assortment of products, completely consisting of interesting models that are excellent for their price segment. The young French company Echo does not belong to such ones, however, it also has several excellent "smart" phones with high chances for remarkable sales. And the hero of today's hero refers precisely to such potential hits.
Echo Plum - greetings from France
The young French smartphone manufacturer Echo is trying in every possible way to squeeze between his more eminent American, European and other colleagues in the market, occupying a certain part of it. Unfortunately, a number of "childhood illnesses" inherent in brand-newcomers are fully presented in the firm. And the hero of today's review clearly demonstrates this fact.
Leagoo Shark 5000 - by the way of simplification
The Chinese company Leagoo can at the same please its fans, and grieve them with rather indistinct smartphones, as well as give misinformation about the real technical parameters of the device. The hero of today's review is a simplified model of his "older brother", aimed at the middle price segment. Can it become more popular than its predecessor?
AGM X2 Max - exceeding any expectations
The sufficiently young Chinese company AGM decided to realize the dream of any fan of smartphones. The hero of today's review does not have a single defect, gathering in itself all the best that only the advanced mobile assistant can provide today.
AGM X2 - a protected ideal
What will happen if we collect all the possible advantages of modern flagship smartphones and combine them in a one device? That's right, the result of this addition will be an excellent hero of today's review, capable of surprising even the most demanding customer.
Oukitel C5 - an inexpensive perfection?
The assortment of production of a majority of firms is characterized by dependence of the price on quality. Of course, it is strictly straight. It seems that the Chinese company Oukitel is unhappy with this state of affairs and squares it. It is simply impossible to explain the appearance of the hero of today's review otherwise.
Yotaphone 3 - almost innovative smartphone
Russian phones with an additional E-INK-display have gained some popularity all over the world, but they never became bestsellers. There are several reasons for this, but the main ones were the heating of devices under load, their weak autonomy and the photographic part. But it's never too late to work on bugs, and the manufacturer decided to release a supplemented and improved sequel after almost three years.
Blackview BV9000 Pro - innovations in the IP68-segment
The Chinese company Blackview in early 2017 decided not to stint on novelties for its dedicated fans. And, it should be noted, smartphones of the company are obtained one better than the other. And in fact, where else could you see a productive protected camera phone at a very attractive price?
Blackview BV8000 Pro - a flagship protection
The BV-line of the Chinese company Blackview has always consisted of functional, technology-based IP68-smartphones, that are not inferior to their "usual" counterparts for a similar cost. Time does not stand still, and the manufacturer decided to go even further, presenting at an extremely democratic price a real protected flagship.
Hafury Mix - when photography is above all
It is not easy for young smartphone manufacturers to achieve high popularity. The main obstacles are the lack of a high-quality advertising campaign, low brand awareness, a disputable correlation of technical characteristics, quality and cost of phones. However, with the latter the Hafury company does not have any problems.
Zopo Color C5i - the easiest one
The Chinese company Zopo definitely has difficulties. After an interesting flagship Speed 8, the manufacturer did not release any smartphone, that was even a bit closer to the high world sales. Perhaps the reason for this is the lack of resources to create competitive products and good advertising campaigns. Anyway, the hero of today's review is also not impressive.
ZOPO Flash X Plus - a stylish stagnation
The level of popularity of the Chinese company Zopo is falling rapidly. Despite the excellent quality and functionality of many of its models, ill-conceived marketing campaigns played their negative role. The hero of today's review, unfortunately, is unlikely to become a bestseller. And there are several reasons for that.
Doogee F9 - when there is something to surprise
The Chinese company Doogee does not belong to the best manufacturers of smartphones in its country, but tries to enter this list. Over the past couple of years, the company has been noted by a significant number of excellent phones, which are not ashamed to be compared with Meizu, Xiaomi and other leading corporations. But is the hero of today's review capable of surpassing most competitors?
Ulefone Tiger Lite - a successful simplification
The creation of a simplified model of a smartphone, which for its segment will be even more interesting than the "older brother" is quite rare for the mobile electronics industry. Often, when the device becomes cheaper, a functional, a design and autonomy go under the knife. But the hero of today's review was able to survive the transformation more than successfully.
Ulefone ONO Pro - an extremely affordable camera phone
Not all people are professional photographers, but the desire to make a clear, beautiful picture that causes, if not rapture, but a storm of positive emotions of the audience, has literally everyone. The hero of today's review is great for those who like photography because of the incredible for the price segment dual camera, consisting of 13 and 5-megapixel photomodules. But will the smartphone surprise us with the rest of parameters?
Ulefone ONO - an unusual budget phone
The Chinese company Ulefone is trying to demonstrate its capabilities in all existing price segments of the smartphone market, but it can show off the best in the budget category. The hero of today's review, though does not claim to be the most technologically advanced phone in its class, but is able to surprise customers.
Ulefone T3 - super economical power
The Chinese company Ulefon in every way seeks to overtake its fellow competitors. The flagship segment is no exception. The hero of this review is not only one of the first devices based on the latest Mediatek Helio P90 processor, but also provides excellent functionality, stylish design for a very modest price for such characteristics.
ZTE Blade V8 Lite - cheap, angry and extremely stylish
The budget segment of the smartphone market is becoming more attractive for manufacturers. The declining average price of a "smart" phone, a significant increase in sales of devices of this category - who does not want to bite off a piece of such a lucrative pie? And the hero of today's review can do it for his creator.
ZTE Blade V8 Mini - camouflage for a flagship
There are not so many people who are versed in smartphone brands and especially in their belonging of this or that unit to a certain price segment. That's why it's doubly pleasant to own a phone that evokes the ecstasy of others with its appearance and does not devastate the wallet. The hero of today's review is in this category of mobile assistants.
ZTE Nubia N1 Lite - a serious simplification
Quite often, after one successful smartphone manufacturer releases its improved or, conversely, simplified versions in the hope of additional profit. In the second case, it is vitally important for the manufacturer to maintain the recognition of the original phone, its characteristics. Unfortunately, this does not always happen.
Bluboo R1 - a high-tech protection
New technologies are everywhere. And even such a conservative segment of the mobile electronics market, like IP68-smartphones, is becoming more functional and interesting. The hero of today's review is definitely capable of surprising. But can he with his not-so-famous "parent" become a hit?
UHAPPY UP350 - a rational acquisition
The balance must be observed in everything. Senseless waste will lead to poverty, excessive excitement - to illness. The list can be continued indefinitely, and it also applies to smartphones. Only a balanced in all respects model can count on love of the audience. And the hero of today's review, despite the small popularity of its manufacturer, is trying to be such one.
UHAPPY UP720 - a "happy" smartphone
Moscow was not immediately built, as well as the current leaders of the smartphone market did not instantly become such ones. That's why young companies are full of enthusiasm and try to present interesting products to the public. The hero of today's review, although will hardly become a bestseller, but he is worthy of attention.
LeEco LeX659 - the ideal is near
The Chinese company LeEco over the past couple of years managed to win a significant part of the audience of the smartphone market, but the company's plans were not fully implemented. The funds spent though were paid off, but did not bring the desired profit. That's why the mobile division of the corporation suffers reductions. The hero of today's review is another attempt to attract additional buyers. But won't it be the last?
Leagoo M8 Pro - global work on bugs
The aspiration of the Chinese company Leagoo not only to increase its profit, but also to become a well-known, prosperous brand, taking care of its customers, is commendable. However, the oversights inherent to young, ambitious firms have not bypassed this manufacturer. Embellishing the characteristics of smartphones, the release of fairly controversial models after the successful ones - these must be stopped sooner or later. Perhaps, the hero of today's review will become that hit, changing the usual state of things for the developer.
Ulefone T1 - affordable flagships for everyone!
What is the difference between flagship smartphones and cheaper representatives of this type of mobile electronics? A thoughtful design to the smallest detail, the stunning power, impressive functionality... The hero of this review adds to the list and democratic price. And how can he be called after this
Ulefone F1 - high technologies, low price
Laurels of Xiaomi Mi Mix do not allow to sleep peacefully other Chinese brands. The Elephone has already tried to implement the concept of a virtually bezelless smartphone with its models S8, ZUK (Edge), and now it's time of the corporation Ulefone. But only by just "bezellessness" the hero of today's review will surprise us or he has a number of other trump cards?
Xiaomi Mi Max 2 - a phablet, that has no analogues
The Chinese company Xiaomi is equally good at any kind of electronics, but especially smartphones have brought her an international fame. And the developer is going to multiply it by great phones in all possible segments. The hero of today's review is in fact unique and ready to show off a great chance to become a leader in the category of "almost-tablets".
Hafury Umax - a perfect budget phablet?
To be economical does not mean to be greedy. Judicious use of funds has always been considered as an important positive quality in a person. And particularly nice is to save, while getting the maximum benefit at minimum cost. And the hero of this review allows it.
Kingzone N6 - Beauty in Chinese
A distinctive feature of the Chinese company Kingzone products is its perfect appearance. Even the most inexpensive smartphones of the Corporation cause genuine delight. However, for creating a successful product it must be provided a plurality of components of a potential hit such as assembly quality, excellent functionality, high performance, etc. Has the manufacturer decided this problem?
Doogee Shoot 2 - double hit on target
The Chinese company Doogee quickly evolves from the once "basement" brand in one of the most interesting producers of mobile electronics in the country. Literally in the last year the company's products were significantly improved in terms of a design, assembly and performance. And the hero of this review causes a genuine desire to buy it quickly.
Zopo Color C5 - the color of victory
The Chinese company Zopo has long been a full rival to big-name national brands such as Lenovo, Xiaomi, Meizu, but now the company's position has deteriorated significantly. Of course, there is no question of bankruptcy or change of activity (let's remember and commemorate Jiayu), and the situation can still be rectified. Will the hero of this review make it?
Asus Zenfone 3 Go - full speed ahead?
The worldwide known company Asus recently positively proved itself as a manufacturer of smartphones. However, the third generation of Zenfone-line was not as successful compared to previous one. And on the example of the hero of today's review is quite possible to find out some reasons.
IMOO C1 - won't teach you bad
The Subbrand of the well-known Chinese company BBK called IMOO was created on purpose. Its mission is the production of smartphones, aimed at teaching students and pupils who have a significant number of training programs. However, the modern market simply would not accept such a product without any other competitive advantages. Can the hero of this review compete with opponents- "ignoramuses"?
Blackview BV7000 Pro - a perfect IP68-smartphone?
As we know, there is no limit to perfection. However, otherwise how can be called a "smart" phone, which has only advantages and is able easily to deal with all the competitors in the price range? Only as perfect. And the hero of this review deserves this compliment.
360 N5 - wanna be a flagship!
Smartphones of the middle price segment are increasingly becoming popular. The reason for this is increasing functionality, an intelligent design, and decreasing of price is not on the last place in the changing of consumer's preferences. The hero of today's review is a great example of such a device, namely, a high-performance, beautiful and still relatively cheap phablet.
Vernee Thor Plus - a long-playing phablet
The Chinese company Vernee knows with what it can attract buyers. Even the most inexpensive smartphones of a company are characterized not only by the excellent style, great functionality and assembly quality, but also by an excellent autonomy. And the hero of today's review isn't an exception to the rules.
Vernee Thor E - an incredible autonomy!
Time of working on a single charge of the smartphone is really important to each user. Often, however, smartphones-powerbanks have not the most attractive appearance, large thickness, and their specifications are rarely encouraging. But the hero of this review decided to fix all the flaws of his "brothers."
